Chapter Recognition – Safety 2017
Posted: Jun 29, 2017
On June 20, 2017 at Safety 2017 in Denver, all of the Region V chapters were recognized for achieving the silver level or higher through the Chapter Operations and Management Tool (COMT) for the 2015-2016 chapter year. The tool measures how well the chapter is providing services to its members and the surrounding community. We were the ONLY region to have all chapters at this level.
The Northeastern Illinois, Northwest, and Wisconsin chapters achieved Platinum status – going above and beyond. This was the second time since the COMT was rolled out that NEIL achieved Platinum. Gold Level Chapters included: Badgerland, Greater Chicago, Hawkeye, Heart of America, Quad Cities, St Louis, and Three Rivers. Silver Level Chapters included Central Illinois, Great Plains, Nicolet, Northeast Iowa, and Wichita. Congratulations to all of our chapters and their leaders!
Platinum Winner – NEIL
Platinum Winner – Wisconsin
Platinum Winner – Northwest
